//===- SampleProfReader.cpp - Read LLVM sample profile data ---------------===//
//                      The LLVM Compiler Infrastructure
// This file is distributed under the University of Illinois Open Source
// License. See LICENSE.TXT for details.
// This file implements the class that reads LLVM sample profiles. It
// supports two file formats: text and binary. The textual representation
// is useful for debugging and testing purposes. The binary representation
// is more compact, resulting in smaller file sizes. However, they can
// both be used interchangeably.
// NOTE: If you are making changes to the file format, please remember
//       to document them in the Clang documentation at
//       tools/clang/docs/UsersManual.rst.
// Text format
// -----------
// Sample profiles are written as ASCII text. The file is divided into
// sections, which correspond to each of the functions executed at runtime.
// Each section has the following format
//     function1:total_samples:total_head_samples
//     offset1[.discriminator]: number_of_samples [fn1:num fn2:num ... ]
//     offset2[.discriminator]: number_of_samples [fn3:num fn4:num ... ]
//     ...
//     offsetN[.discriminator]: number_of_samples [fn5:num fn6:num ... ]
// The file may contain blank lines between sections and within a
// section. However, the spacing within a single line is fixed. Additional
// spaces will result in an error while reading the file.
// Function names must be mangled in order for the profile loader to
// match them in the current translation unit. The two numbers in the
// function header specify how many total samples were accumulated in the
// function (first number), and the total number of samples accumulated
// in the prologue of the function (second number). This head sample
// count provides an indicator of how frequently the function is invoked.
// Each sampled line may contain several items. Some are optional (marked
// below):
// a. Source line offset. This number represents the line number
//    in the function where the sample was collected. The line number is
//    always relative to the line where symbol of the function is
//    defined. So, if the function has its header at line 280, the offset
//    13 is at line 293 in the file.
//    Note that this offset should never be a negative number. This could
//    happen in cases like macros. The debug machinery will register the
//    line number at the point of macro expansion. So, if the macro was
//    expanded in a line before the start of the function, the profile
//    converter should emit a 0 as the offset (this means that the optimizers
//    will not be able to associate a meaningful weight to the instructions
//    in the macro).
// b. [OPTIONAL] Discriminator. This is used if the sampled program
//    was compiled with DWARF discriminator support
//    (http://wiki.dwarfstd.org/index.php?title=Path_Discriminators).
//    DWARF discriminators are unsigned integer values that allow the
//    compiler to distinguish between multiple execution paths on the
//    same source line location.
//    For example, consider the line of code ``if (cond) foo(); else bar();``.
//    If the predicate ``cond`` is true 80% of the time, then the edge
//    into function ``foo`` should be considered to be taken most of the
//    time. But both calls to ``foo`` and ``bar`` are at the same source
//    line, so a sample count at that line is not sufficient. The
//    compiler needs to know which part of that line is taken more
//    frequently.
//    This is what discriminators provide. In this case, the calls to
//    ``foo`` and ``bar`` will be at the same line, but will have
//    different discriminator values. This allows the compiler to correctly
//    set edge weights into ``foo`` and ``bar``.
// c. Number of samples. This is an integer quantity representing the
//    number of samples collected by the profiler at this source
//    location.
// d. [OPTIONAL] Potential call targets and samples. If present, this
//    line contains a call instruction. This models both direct and
//    number of samples. For example,
//      130: 7  foo:3  bar:2  baz:7
//    The above means that at relative line offset 130 there is a call
//    instruction that calls one of ``foo()``, ``bar()`` and ``baz()``,
//    with ``baz()`` being the relatively more frequently called target.
